University Colllege London
I hail from a French-Algerian background, and my life's journey has been anything but linear.
My academic roots were planted in France at ENSAE and ENS, where I studied maths. It led me to Wall Street as a quant. The exhilaration was palpable, but soon, the skyscrapers felt confining, and I craved more substantive work.
I pivoted to the challenging world of Anti-Money Laundering (AML), applying my analytical skills to ensure the integrity of financial systems. On a more personal venture, I ventured into the world of entrepreneurship, crafting a distinctive food brand in the U.S. However, visa issues threw a curveball, forcing me to close my brand.
A new chapter began when I moved to Colombia. Here, I founded an accounting software business, tailored to local needs. I also embarked on a PhD journey in Medellín, in collaboration with University College London (UCL).
In addition to my ventures, I'm a writer, focusing on digital humanities. My reflections on the intersection of technology and culture can be accessed on my writer's profile.
